Dado size for Bosch 4000 TS

I know that this has been discussed a lot and I've read most of them but here are some follow up questions:
1) Is there more tearout on 6" vs 8" dado blades.
2) Shouldn't the inertia built up with 8" actually assist the motor after start up?
Thanks, Jim

not having a 6" dado to compare with my 8" set, all I can do is speculate.
the 8" set will have a higher tip speed, which should help reduce tearout. it may be a moot point though, depending on the rpms of your saw. sharpness and tooth configuration may be a bigger factor than diameter.

it should have the effect of helping the saw overcome small variations in the density of the material. it won't let you maintain a faster feed rate.
